Iris fell in love with yoga after being reintroduced during her time living and dancing in Israel. Iris moved to New York City from Boston to complete her undergraduate studies in dance and biology at Marymount Manhattan College. Her dance background brings a unique perspective to the vinyasa and aerial yoga flow and her biology background encourages her students to work intelligently and conciously with their physical body. Her flow demands that students organize, embody and experience the present. In addition to working with the physical/asana practice, Iris is trained to teach and teaches meditation, pranayama, pre/post natal, and yoga therapeutics for trauma, injuries, depression and anxiety.
